 The Hadlow Down Festival Minimize

Hadlow Down Festival 2017 is nearly here!
Just to give you an update on the progress of planning the Hadlow Down Festival, which is being supported by Hadlow Down Parish Council and funded through a Big Lottery grant. 
The village has really “come up trumps” with nearly 50 events and entries in the booklet. Some events have more than one day so an extra opportunity to take part and there are many brand new events for the village. There are children’s and young people’s events as well as the usual adult activities. 
To give you a flavour of just a few: on 24th June, there will be a Scarecrow Trail and Wilderness Lane Country Garden Walk and eight open gardens; in July, the Variety Club are putting on 5 activities; the Playing Fields Association are running junior cricket coaching and pop-up restaurants (3 evenings); ENGAge and the Friends of St. Mark’s school have a Village quiz; on 29th July there will be a Tea Dance for all ages; dog shows in July and August; in September, the Horticultural Society have an Evening of Gardeners’ Question time; and there will be an Art exhibition and autumn celebration in the church. There is a lot more in the booklet. Some events you can just turn up on the day, others you will have to book ahead but all the information will be in the booklet.
I am pleased to tell you that everyone who receives the Hadlow Down parish magazine will also receive in their June edition a copy of the Festival booklet. We will also be distributing them in wider areas so that people outside the village can take part. 
If you can’t wait, the booklet will be available shortly on the website at www.hadlowdown.com so you can take a look to see what is coming up. You can also keep up-to-date with the latest news on our Facebook page. If you would like more information, you can contact me Denise at deniseleary86@gmail.com. If you would like to volunteer at any events, do contact the Event organisers or I can put you in touch with them. 
We hope you enjoy the Festival and look forward to seeing you at one or more of the events.

Officers have recovered items they believed to have been stolen during a number of burglaries across Sussex. The haul, which includes various items of jewellery and antiques, was discovered by police when they stopped three men back in March.

The majority of dog owners are responsible people and clear up their dog's pooh, are you one of them? 

Can people please ensure that they clear up after their dogs at the playing field.  The football pitch is due to open in the summer and with the cricket matches as well it is unhygienic and disgusting for participants to have to play where people haven't bothered to pick up their dog's mess.  Can villagers also ensure that their dog(s) can't automatically get access to the field without them there. 

Hanging a filled dog pooh bag in a tree does not count as clearing up after your dog, there is a bin provided at the entrance to the playing field which is regularly emptied. 

Thank you for your support in this matter.  Parish Council Clerk
